Hiking - Hadley Mountain

It was another perfect late summer day, dry and cool, and just right for hiking. Holly and I, along with friends Bob and Carol, took a leisurely walk up Hadley, where we found the usual fine views. Off to the south is Great Sacandaga Lake, where Bob and Carol have a camp.

To the north, we could see Blue and Crane Mountains. On a good day, the Adirondack High Peaks can be seen clearly, but today was a bit too hazy to see more than their faint outlines on the horizon.

From Hadley, we followed an unofficial path over to its northern summit, also known to the USGS as West Mountain. The views there were similar, but chairs made of local stones were perched there for our comfort. We also found this artistic stegosaurus someone had created.

After the hike, we retired to Bob and Carol's camp for a sumptuous dinner of burgers, corn on the cob, salads, beer, wine, and strawberries for dessert.
